  1. Yorkshire Terrier

The Yorkshire Terrier is cute, cuddly and compact – all three make for a great apartment dog.

Finishing off our list of dog breeds for apartments is the Yorkshire Terrier. Cute, cuddly, and compact – all three traits make for a great apartment dog. Weighing in at just 6 to 7 pounds, the Yorkie doesn’t take up much space. However, while these silky doggies might be miniature, they don’t seem to know it: Yorkshire Terriers are fierce, bold, and have a personality larger than life- let alone their tiny bodies.

They absolutely love being the center of the attention and won’t stray far from their pawrents, which is why these dogs don’t mind modestly sized condos. On top of that, this breed is fairly quiet in regular conditions. As a watchdog at heart, a Yorkie will bark if they feel the need to protect their turf; but nothing that would cause problems with the residents’ association. A Yorkie can adapt quickly to new people, situations and pets, so feel free to invite people over to meet your furry roommate. And as long as you give them enough attention, your pocket-size pupper will be more than happy to curl up on your lap all day.
